Red berries of viburnum glow above the tawny colors
of dried grass and underbrush.
The subtle, soft hues seem so beautiful to me.
The birds love these berries, which sustain them throughout the long, cold winter.
"Some of the days in November carry the whole memory of summer
as a fire opal carries the color of moonrise."

The tall, black cottonwood trees are the last to lose their golden leaves.
" How beautiful leaves grow old. How full of light
and color are their last days."
